MW3: 1 Day Left!

The time is almost upon us where we stop playing MW2 or Black ops and put MW3 in our disc tray. Yes folks it is 1 whole day till Modern Warfare 3 comes out. I just can’t contain my self. I will have 2 prestige tokens – from prestiging in Black ops and MW2 plus 4 hours double XP which I got from pre-ordering of Game. I will keep you updated on: what I think of the game, which guns are the best, the best camping spots on maps and tones of other stuff. So follow this blog by clicking at the top right hand corner and entering your email address.

Just a quick update!

A few things to blog about, but such little time. First Battlefield 3 has been out just over a week and has sold 5 million copies but Call of Duty Black ops sold that in its first day. So the analyst may be right Call of Duty just might outsell Battlefield 2-1.

Minecraft has won the GameCity video game arts prize! It is a pretty beautiful game – in a blocky sort of way. It was announced at the end of the GameCity video game culture festival in Nottingham! It won over other big titles like Valve’s Portal 2. ‘Its a great honour to be compared to those games’ Says Swedish creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson. the game has been bought over 4 million times world-wide even though it’s still a beta! Remember it is due out next month.

The Grand Thief Auto v (GTA) trailer is out. I don’t know much about GTA so I probably won’t be blogging about it.

007 Goldeneye: Reloaded comes out today for Europe. It stars Daniel Craig, with better graphics than the Wii version. A multiplayer is also included along with a story-line and a MI6 ops mode. For more info click this link.

Call of Duty: Double XP

For the first time ever there is double XP across the whole Call of Duty franchise, for the whole weekend, that’s Call of Duty 4, World at War, Modern Warfare 2 and Black Ops. My advise is use this to prestige and in doing so you will get prestige tokens in MW3 which you can buy stuff with, like an extra create-a-class or special emblems. So in Mw3 you could start of with 6 create-a-class and be ahead of the game. Beat you friends!

How to improve your game!

Back when I was a noob on CoD, I struggled to go positive. Here are my tips and tricks so you can be prepared for MW3 or improve on earlier CoD games.

MW2, 'Ump45' with 'Red Dot' sight

  1. Sensitivity – turn your sensitivity up. Some times when you go in for the knife, you miss and it’s whoever turns round first gets the kill.
  2. Brightness – Turn up your brightness to see the happy campers in dark corners.
  3. Button layout – Try out the ‘Tactical Button Layout  it keeps you body motions closer to your fingers so drop shotting is easier.
  4. Sound – some times the volume isn’t loud enough and you may not hear the click of a gun round the corner.
  5. Perks – use perks to complement you play style and gun, don’t have Lightweight or Marathon if you’re a camper.
  6. Kill streaks – Set your kill streaks to what you can achieve or whats the point?

I hoped these helped. What are you most looking forward to in MW3? leave your answer in the comments:

Gamers Kit list Part 2

My next suggestion is to ‘up your game’. Are you tired of people sneaking up behind you and stabbing you in the back? Are you tired of people planting the bomb beneath your nose? Well I say no more! With these Turtle Beaches you can shoot the backstabber and kill the bomb planter! No more shall you go negative.

X11's

The Turtle Beach X11’s are a good place to start for a medium budget (about £50) they are wired, which can occasionally get tangled. They have an amplifier to control game volume and chat volume, you don’t have to listen to the squeaky little boy anymore. It plays your voice back to you, so you won’t scream again!

X41's

The Turtle Beach X41’s are for the bigger budget (£150) but they are wireless, which means the headset runs on batteries.It has all the same other features as the X11’s. The wireless transmitter has a range of 30 feet.

These will really help you! You will be amazed of how amazing the sound is! Good luck!
